by Fr. F.X. Schouppe, S.J.
It is a fact of divine revelation that the soul of every person who dies in the state of grace, but without having made sufficient expiation on earth for his forgiven sins, will undergo the punishment and purification of Purgatory before entering Heaven. In this fascinating book, Father Schouppe presents the ancient Catholic tradition on Purgatory, how its pains are adapted to the past sins of each individual soul, how they can vary in duration from less than one minute to a period of several centuries, and how they manifest the infinite mercy of God no less than His justice
Purgatory Explained is a book which goes to the very heart of the Faith and should be read by every Catholic – by everyone who has deceased relatives or friends, by everyone who has sins to make up for, and by everyone who wants to make a spiritual investment that will return to him a hundredfold..
